Hindu leader slams Kellogg’s for not disclosing beef gelatin

August 16, 2017 from FoodSafety.com:

"Rajan Zed, president of the Universal Society of Hinduism (USofH), is calling out Kellogg’s CEO John A. Bryant for failing to disclose that some of the company’s cereals contain beef-based gelatin."
"Zed says the world’s 1 billion Hindus were shocked to learn that some of the Kellogg’s cereals they’ve been eating for years without concern, in fact, contained beef-based gelatin, which is not disclosed on packaging or labels." "Gelatin is a protein made from the skins and bones of pigs and cows. It’s a common ingredient in many products. Hindu religion prohibits followers from eating meat from cows."
"Kellogg’s has confirmed that beef-based gelatin is an ingredient in all varieties of Kellogg’s Frosted Pop-Tarts, Kellogg’s Frosted Mini-Wheats and Kellogg’s Rice Krispies Treats cereal. All Kellogg’s fruit flavored snacks and all Kellogg’s Krave Treat Bars contain either pork or beef-based gelatin."
